Not sure if this is the correct area or not and I hope as a new rider and new forum member people donâ€™t take this the wrong way. I ride in to Melbourneâ€™s CBD every day and work on Collins St. Because I start early itâ€™s no issue for me to park on the foot path without affecting pedestrians. Around 8:30-9am Iâ€™ll go get a drink and sit at the front of our building and watch the bikes turn upâ€¦ and Iâ€™ve got to say some riders are going to get all riders in Melbourne in trouble. I notice bikes riding on the footpath twice the speed of pedestrians, backing out in front of them and even beeping at them. Since I started riding around 3 months ago there has been an obvious increase in riders. Where I park when I started riding would have maybe another one to two bikes near me, now itâ€™s six or seven. My concern is that a few pushy riders are going to tick someone off whoâ€™s going to have a whinge to council and weâ€™ll not be allowed on the footpaths anymore. Personally I believe we should only ride a walking pace, have our feet on the ground and give pedestrians the right of way. If that means it takes a minute or two to park then so be itâ€¦ itâ€™s a hell of a lot better then the alternatives.
